Tooth extraction is a dental procedure in which a tooth is removed from its socket in the jawbone. This procedure is typically performed by a dentist or an oral surgeon and may be necessary for several reasons, i

  1. Severe tooth decay: When a tooth is extensively decayed and cannot be saved with other dental treatments such as fillings or crowns, extraction may be the only option to prevent further damage or infection.

  2. Advanced gum disease: Periodontal disease can cause the supporting tissues and bone around a tooth to deteriorate, leading to loose teeth that may require extraction.

  3. Impacted wisdom teeth: Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, may become impacted (unable to fully emerge through the gums) due to lack of space in the jaw or their improper alignment. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, swelling, and infection, necessitating extraction.

  4. Orthodontic treatment: In some cases, tooth extraction may be necessary to create space in the mouth for orthodontic treatment, such as braces, especially if there is severe crowding of teeth.

  1. Anesthesia: Before the extraction, the dentist or oral surgeon will administer local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth. In some cases, sedation may also be used to help the patient relax during the procedure.

  2. Extraction: Once the area is numb, the dentist will use specialized instruments to gently loosen the tooth from its socket and remove it. In some cases, the tooth may need to be sectioned into smaller pieces for easier removal.

  3. Post-extraction care: After the tooth has been extracted, the dentist will provide instructions for caring for the extraction site, including how to manage any bleeding or swelling and how to prevent infection. It’s essential to follow these instructions carefully to promote healing and reduce the risk of complications.
